Thousands of pets end up at animal shelters simply because they outlived their pet owners who had not planned for their continued care. Typically “orphaned” pets deteriorate in the shelter environment. This session will outline what options are available to ensure “lifetime care” for pets and how your organization can help pet owners in your community plan for the possibility that their pets might outlive them. The mission of 2nd Chance for Pets is to reduce the number of pets unnecessarily euthanized each year due to the death or incapacity of the human companions who care for them. 2nd Chance 4 Pets is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) all-volunteer organization. They work nationwide to provide pet owners with comprehensive information and lifetime care solutions, ensuring that their pets will receive lifetime care.
